Interviewing the Alcohol/Drug Impaired Subject

Course Number: AL-248
Course Length: 1 Day (7.5 Hours)

Few challenges to law enforcement, alcohol/drug treatment and counseling professionals are as varied or frequent as that posed by attempting to gather useful information from the impaired person - without triggering an unpleasant or violent response. This workshop addresses several of the issues involved and discusses alternate approaches - both to acquire needed information and to avoid adverse reactions. Topics include alcohol impairment, compliant vs. antagonistic personalities, avoiding false information, effects of hangovers on interviews, triggers to anger when under the influence and suggestions for improving interviews with impaired persons. Problems encountered with specific drugs other than alcohol, along with approaches which improve these interactions, are discussed. Specific drug use covered includes alcohol, marijuana, amphetamines, cocaine, crack, heroin, PCP, methamphetamine, LSD, MDMA, Ketamine, Rohypnol, GHB, psilocybin, steroids, 2C-B and inhalants.
